Hi all!

I am happy mom to an IVF baby and we are just about to start treatments for #2. I am a little excited and little bit nervous, after all I am three years older, and well within "advanced maternal age", so we'll probably have a different experience this time.

We fall under the umbrella of "unexplained infertility", though my HSG suggested a blocked tube and DH has had inconsistent counts. Our first treatment went quite well. We had two day 5 embryos from our first cycle. The fresh cycle was unsuccessful, but the frozen cycle worked for us and at 38w5d our DD was born (yay!). Since she was born, we have used no BC and had no luck conceiving, so it's back on the merry-go-round for us!

I look forward to getting to know you all and hearing about your experiences.

Welcome! I am also Mom to an IVF baby (also a girl), and we're gearing up for #2 as well. I hope that this cycle has great results for you!

When is your next appointment?

Thanks- I start FSH on the 9th of July and we will go from there. We are going on Vaca the last two weeks in June, so it will be a real fresh start!
